roughing it

two things drove me to distraction today:

1. getting a phone call from the boss, informing me that i urgently had to deal with a problem that was caused by one of the developers integrating with my system without reading the api i'd provided and without performing basic testing.

that's very, very annoying.

2. later on, i received another phone call telling me that the system was experiencing strange issues. my head was stuck deep in sonnets, and it took a while to figure out that the patch i'd made for the previous issue wasn't safe.



i'm up to four pages of my first paper, and although i've done the "tough stuff" already i can't transcribe things without verifying them... this is seriously slow going.

now taking a break: a comedy of errors in hebrew. i'm hoping it'll be as entertaining as a midsummer night's dream.
